Kim Min Jung Cast in Korean Drama “Mr. Sunshine”

Mr. Sunshine Korean Drama - Kim Min Jung

Kim Min Jung (Man to Man) has been cast in the upcoming tvN drama Mr. Sunshine starring Lee Byung Hun (Iris) and Kim Tae Ri (The Handmaiden). She will be replacing Kim Sa Rang who recently stepped down due to scheduling conflicts. So hopefully, our cast is now all in place.

Mr. Sunshine comes from writer Kim Eun Sook of hits such as Goblin and Descendants of the Sun. It is set during the early 1900’s and is about the romance of a soldier (Lee Byung Hun) of the righteous army and an aristocrat’s daughter (Kim Tae Ri).

It follows the story of the soldier who got on a U.S. military expedition as a child and grew up in America. As an adult, he then returns to Korea as a soldier during the final years of the Joseon era.

Mr. Sunshine is scheduled to premiere in July on tvN.

  1. I’m honestly confused about the plot. I’m also not that as invested with it either. It’s almost like Descendants of the Sun for me. The only thing keeping me interested is that it seems more historical. I’m just hoping that it still has a bit of humor apart of it.

      I believe it will mostly center around the first Japanese resistance groups after Lee Byung Hun returns to Korea and gets involved with it. I’m very interested in the time period since it’s not commonly depicted and I too like historicals.

      I would also bet there’s a high chance there will be humor. Almost all of this writer’s drama do: Goblin, DOTS, Heirs. All have a side of humor to go along with the melodrama. Of course, this is her first full period piece, so I suppose she could change course. I’m a fan of her style though, so I think I’ll be good either way 🙂

      • The one thing I am curious about is the language. He is coming from America, so I know he will still have his Korean accent since he went there as a kid. I’m just wondering if they are incorporating it all in the show. Also, I want to know if Lee Byung Hun can even deliver humor. I’ve only seen him in dramas.

          Yes, the language thing should come into play. Before they even announced casting anyone, they said they needed someone who was fluent in English because of the character’s background. So I would imagine we will get to hear him speak plenty of English. I could definitely see why they chose Lee Byung Hun because of that.

          Hmmm, now I’m thinking about if I have seen him do humor. It wasn’t exactly humor, but in the first few eps of Iris, he had quite a few light and playful moments. But that’s about the most I’ve seen. Of course, if humor isn’t his forte, he could be the straight faced one with some of the other actors being more silly around him much to his discontent, hehe 🙂
